"From the first sniff, the 2020 Columella is an instant champion that is pointing and swinging for the fence. With its fresh frame of fruit and expertly layered oaky essences, the wine is incredibly complex as it bursts from the glass with precision and finesse. Medium-bodied and with 13.5% alcohol, the Columella somersaults into a phantasmagoria of bright crunchy red fruit flavors and seductive floral essences that makes my head spin. Collectors will take note and add a couple of bottles of this to their cellar. It’s an absolutely stellar bottling that will age gracefully for decades."

97 points James Suckling
"Complex and deep aromas of blueberries, crushed plums, blackberries, cloves and black pepper. Medium- to full-bodied with juicy, fruit-soaked tannins. Finely texture with wonderful depth and intensity. Succulent and vibrant on the palate with great length and ever evolving savory complexity. Terrific. A bit tense right now but will relax with time. Best after 2025."

Vinous Reverie Notes
"There is nothing else quite like this wine in the whole wine world." ~ Jancis Robinson
Blend; Syrah, Mourvèdre, Grenache, Carignan, Cinsaut & Tinta Barocca. Soil: Granite, Slate, Gravel & Sandstone formations. Tasting Notes: Lifted bright red crushed fruit that follows through to some darker blueberry aromas. On the palate, the wine is extremely finely knitted together and the tannin is almost seamless and the wine finishes powder dry with even more refined tannins in the aftertaste. The acidity is like a tightrope that threads through the wine from beginning to end and is mostly the workings of the Carignan and Mourvèdre in the blend.
